Chuck Ragan- The Blueprint Sessions

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, been pretty busy with finals. Anyways, this is a group of four seven inches Chuck recorded in 2006. The sessions used to be available on iTunes but for some reason were taken off. Also a good number of the songs from the sessions made it onto Chuck's debut solo full length Feast or Famine. Now, back to the music. The sessions do a great job of capturing the raw emotion of Ragan's songs. All of them are simple stripped-down, acoustic with the occasional harmonica solo strategically placed. I think I may still prefer Rumbleseat to his solo work, but they're pretty close.
